Welcome....Here's a glimpse of our happenings!

The verses that have REALLY spoken to me (Sarah) lately....

"Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock." Matthew 7:24-25

Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings. I Peter 5:8-9

From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us. For in him we live and move and have our being. As some of your own poets have said, 'We are his offspring.' Acts 17:26-28

May the words of my mouth and the mediation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, my Rock, and my Redeemer. Psalm 19:14

So be careful to do what the Lord your God has commanded you; do not turn aside to the right or to the left. Walk in all the way that the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live and prosper and prolong your days in the land that you will possess. Deuteronomy 5:32-33

God, our God, will take care of the hidden things but the revealed things are our business. It's up to us and our children to attend to all the terms in this Revelation. Deuteronomy 29:29 (The Message)

About the Friesen's....

A Blizzard in the Middle of Summer....

Today, Luke and I headed into Wichita for lunch with Marc...We like to do that once a month or so.

We ate at none other than Dairy Queen (a.k.a. DQ)....

Yes, International Dairy Queen is my former employer. And yes, Luke's Uncle Joel (a.k.a. Joo -- in "Luke Speak") does manage this particular location. (Joel is my brother).

But, you might remember from my previous post that DQ is a HUGE contributor to Children's Miracle Network -- an organization that provides for sick kids and their families.

One day a year, in August, participating DQs in the USA and in Canada donate a percentage of their proceeds from ALL Blizzards sold to Children's Miracle Network. Today, August 5, was the day this year.

So, not only did we visit a DQ with which I used to work with as well as visit "Joo," but we also supported a wonderful organization by eating yummy Blizzards in the middle of what is turning out to be a very hot summer in Kansas.

Luke did not have a Blizzard, despite the day....He did, however, enjoy some very yummy DQ soft serve. And yes, someday, when he's older, we will let him a Blizzard on occasion. For right now, he's VERY content with a child-sized dish of soft serve.

BUT, Marc and I both did partake of a Blizzard treat.

And, because I had the camera, there are obviously more photos of Marc than of myself -- which is certainly O.K. with me :)

I hope you all don't mind "Goofy Marc" shots....

Now, Marc and I did order the same kind of Blizzard today....Here's the question....What kind of Blizzard did we both order? Hint: It's not the most usual kind in the world....

Leave a comment if you care to guess. Nope, I don't have any fancy dancy prizes. But, you may certainly have bragging rights, for whatever that is worth :)

Was the flavor....

a) Tropical
b) German Chocolate
c) Double Fudge Cookie Dough
d) Mud Pie

The Koehns said...

Well, since you don't like coffee, mud pie is out. I could call Joo and ask him, but I won't. My guess is German Chocolate.

Diana said...

Oh great, now I have a DQ craving........
